Thanks to the consistent weather conditions, the warm aquamarine water, and close proximity to dozens of incredible reefs and wrecks, the US are the ideal destination for a diving charter vacation. Since many dive sites are just 30 feet under water, the Virgin Islands is an excellent place for both beginners and experienced divers. Because the water is relatively shallow and so clear, many of the popular dive sites are also great for snorkelers.
For visitants looking for the best scuba diving in the USVI, there are various must-see dive spots. Cow and Calf Rocks are easily accessible from both St. Thomas and St. John, and provide divers with the chance to see caves, tunnels, and arches covered in colorful coral.
Off of St John’s East End lies Eagle Shoals and the “Cathedral,” a vast underwater space where natural sunlight engulfs the water underneath. The Cathedral is an excellent beginner dive site because of the sheltered waters.
St Croix is famous for its north wall drop (great for diving and fishing), as well as its wreck remains at Butler Bay and Buck Island which offer divers of all levels the chance to experience labyrinths, tunnels, caves, grottos.
There are many other dive sites all throughout the Caribbean, for divers destined for the USVI, the hardest part will be deciding which sites to visit.
